Cat 279c bucket wont dump Help!

As title says my cat 279c wont dump. Bucket will curl back up fine, arms will raise up and down fine, but when you go to dump it will just go a couple inches and yellow caution light will flash and you have to put park brake on and take it off and it will move a little more. Any ideas?
